Sex Against Wife's Consent Is Not Rape: Chhattisgarh HC

In a landmark judgment on August 26, the Chhattisgarh high court ruled that sexual intercourse against the wife's consent cannot be charged with marital rape if the woman is above ''18 years of age''. The ruling came after a man in his plea sought to annul the charges of rape by his wife. ''There's no provision as marital rape in India,'' said a Chhattisgarh HC advocate.
